2007 Albarino Burgans Rías Baixas
I digress, back to the crisp, cool, light, and slightly sweet wine. I can't say I've ever heard of the Rias Baixas wine region before (from NW Spain) nor the Albariño white grape, but found it be be closest to a savignon blanc. Great first impression with the matching orange cork (synthetic). The finish was a bit sweet, which made for a perfect summer wine to compliment my BBQ'd Halibut. Citrus & peach flavors, floral on the nose. If you come across this wine in a Tapas restaurant, throw down, it's a good one. I paid $11 @ Sam's Wine (a great value) for this 7/10.
